Hey guys anyone here know of any good UFO doco's that you can recommend??
(Log in to remove this ad.)
I can give you one that is so bad it's good. Ancient Aliens.
Well, best place to start would be aborigonal dreaming stories. then if you study whats known of the DNA of some of this island ancient inhabitants, those stories become more relevant. Then if you cross the indian ocean and see some of the more moderate docos on ancient egyptians and extra terrerstial clues, you'll see things add up to stories here. In fact you'll find similarities with ancient greek references to aliens.
But the black fella DNA is mindboggling. thousands and thousands of years ago they bred with someones DNA, thousands and thousands of years old from a large population, at that time. Possibly a completly different specie and if you understand mythology, after a war with possibly nuclear weapons.
I quite like docos that discuss UFOs/paranormal and then completely debunk them. Haven't ever watched one that supports the notion for very long though.
That is a scholarly and well researched treatise compared with the Nazi UFO Conspiracy which gets a run on the war channel once a month. Would be a top name for a band or album
UFO Hunters wasn't too bad. 3 guys would investigate different topics each episode, sometimes they'd interview absolute wackos but would also get the credible witnesses like passenger airline pilots or cops. 3 guys, one a scientist and a skeptic, another who was more moderate and, fatally for the show, an older guy who was an absolute nutcase, believed anything.
One ep they climbed a mountain so they could get a view of Area 51. They mustn't have heard of google maps!
They also had some....entertaining eps about Giant UFOs and USOs (submerged)!
Avoid another series "Chasing UFOs" like the plague.
In all likelihood there is life out there...but the distances to get here or there are mind boggling that we or them would have to defy time.
Close Encounters ftw.
Back in the day this was considered to be ....well I'm not sure.... but a lot of people watched it.
I've watched everyone of them, I reckon.There is so much crap out there.
'Out of the Blue' is decent. Jamie Foxx made it off memory.
If you can get hold of it, the Walt Disney produced doco (supposedly to soften us plebs up for disclosure) is also interesting.
There's a very good French one too. Can't remember its name though.
Have you watched http://www.watchdoable.com/ufos-nikola-tesla-free-energy-and-antigravity/
Pretty interesting info imho...
There's a good one from 1996 called "Where are all the UFO's" which is narrated by Michael Dorn and pretty much shows that UFO's are nothing more than Mass Hysteria and even gives an interesting explanation for those alien abduction stories.
It tells how the phenomenon is comparable to mankind's fears about witches and demons in the past and it began after the infamous 'War of the Worlds" radio broadcast by Orson Welles in the 30's and was fuelled by cold war paranoia of the 50's.
It is an interesting take on it.
Theres a good doco on the UFO that was spotted Victoria at South Clayton school back in the 60s.
No footage but interviews with people who saw it in their later years. They saw SOMETHING, they appear legit.
Its called, Westall 66: A suburban UFO Mystery.
Worth watching especially if you are a skeptic.
Cultural tracking. What people see and how they visualise it is informed by the culture of the times. All of those UFOs from the 50s were quite ornate in a Cadillac kind of way. There's little doubt, in my mind at least, that this is a huge influence in what people report they see. Jacques Valle amongst others has written about it too.
A very good friend of mine grew up in the area - the UFO incident was before his time though. Anyway, his uncle was there that day - not at the school - but nearby. He saw strange things he can't explain. It's a very interesting case.
Check out one caqlled "I Know What I Saw" - I've seen a tonne and this is probably the best one I've seen, has a bunch of people from different credible fields (cops, air force pilots, airline & military pilots, astronauts, mayors, other government reps etc) all detailing their experiences with witnessing UFO's. Came about following a press conference a group of them held which was broadcast on one of the US cable news networks.
I love the Ancient Aliens series as well though some of the episodes are horrible. One of the best ones though was from season 4 earlier this year and was about Puma Punku in South America.
There are none.
But I would recommend this good fictional film http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_18_(film)
My Mum Talks to Aliens is pretty interesting, an Australian production too.
